    Okay. It was Sunday & rain was not predicted in the weather. I knew this & had invited guests over earlier in the week. Two couples & two singles. So I fired up the Char Griller & had at it. Here is the line-up: Three racks of baby backs, One pork butt, two fatties & Chicken breasts / Legs.

    Here is the butt. It was 5.77 lbs., smoked with hickory & cherry for eight hours @ 225-240 degrees. Pull @ 165, foiled & placed back in the smoker until 195 degrees. Pulled, double foiled & placed in cooler wrapped in a towel to rest for two hours. Only spritzed with apple juice twice before the first foil.

    The baby backs after being washed & cleaned up.

    I used the 2-1.5-1 method. I spritzed the ribs with apple juice before foiling at the 1.5 step. They rested in foil, wrapped in a towel in the cooler for 45 minutes.

    Chicken marinaded in italian dressing. They were smoked as well with Hickory & Cherry & then finished on the grill.

    Mushroom, onion & provoline & pepperjack cheese fatties with the same smoke.

    We also had:

    The cherry pie was a la mode with Black walnut ice cream.

    Final product: Baby backs, pulled pork sandwiches on onion bread, sweet potatoe puree, roasted vegetables with melted cheese, homemade boston baked beans, smoked / grilled chicken, empanadas & pin wheels & asparagus wrapped in bruschetta.

    Thank you for looking.

    Thank you very much. We try to provide good food for our guests.

    I don't do measurements well. I would rather have too much than not enough. The product of coming from a large family I suppose. Thank you for the comments. And my address is 1313 mockingbird lane. I'll send you an invite next time.

    They took plates as they hobbled away. My wife & I looked at each other & smiled. We we thinking, "YES!" Thank you

    See above for the address. Thanks.

    Thank you. I felt good doing it & nervous at the same time. I should have tested on my family first & not live subjects. But all & all, it worked out. Thank you.
